                                       (WOIO) -
A Shaker Heights mother and son were sentenced Wednesday in a pit bull attack that killed a great-grandmother.
Bobbie Green and her son Leon Morton previously pleaded guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and negligent homicide.
Leon Morton was sentenced to 30 months in the Lorain Correctional Facility, and Bobbie Green was sentenced to two years probation. Green will now have a life prohibition from ever owning or caring for a dog.
Annie Williams, 71, died in July after being attacked by a pit bull on Pennington Road in Shaker Heights. Police said Williams was picking up her two great-granddaughters at the time.  
The dog was at the home of Green and Morton. 
The animal was wounded by a neighbor, who shot at the dog after witnessing the attack. The wounded dog was then shot and killed by officers.
Williams moved to Cleveland from Mobile, AL, at 21. She worked 30 years at University Hospitals as a dietician's aide.

As always, the only thing the defendants are really sorry about is that they are now bearing consequences for what they did. Too bad those consequences aren't much heavier.
